If you're in the market for a new sports car, there are vehicles for sale locally. Check out these options below: 1. 2011 Porche Panamera 4S, $71,900 This jet-black (is that an oxymoron?) coupe is justly described as a "head turner" by the dealer, Automall Collection in Peabody. It has 35,880 miles on it and is under the factory warranty for the balance of what's left of that warranty. For more, visit AOL Autos. 2. 2013 MINI Hardtop John Cooper Works, $39,950 I don't know if there's a serious debate about whether MINIs are sports cars. But there's no doubt the souped-up top of the line MINI, the John Cooper Works edition, counts as a sports car. MINI of Peabody has a variety of models in this trim, including this one in "thunder gray" …

Planned gazebo is in very early stages for the Lynnfield Common area. Students from Northeast Metropolitan Regional Vocational School in Wakefield may help build it.
Many details remain to be finalized, but a gazebo may be on or near Lynnfield Common within a year - with help from local vocational school students as well as that town's Rotary club. Nan Hockenbury, chair of the Lynnfield Historical Commission and the Lynnfield Historical Society, told Patch.com Monday that the gazebo was initially proposed several years ago and remains in its very early planning stages. Lynnfield selectmen voted Monday night to have the project go forward, she added. The Lynnfield Rotary has indicated that it will provide financial support for the project - with the costs primarily limited to the building materials. Students at North Shore Technical High School in Middleton and Northeast Metropolitan Regional Vocational…

Summer Milsky, 8, Luke Greif, 6, and Noah Greif, 10, set out to raise $1,000 for the Wakefield Interfaith Food Pantry and the One Fund. They beat that goal handily.
Last week, this website noted that three young Wakefield residents - Summer Milsky, Luke Greif and Noah Greif - were setting up their "Lemon-Aid 3" lemonade stand Saturday on the Wakefield Common with an eye on raising $1,000 for the Wakefield Interfaith Food Pantry and for the One Fund. According to parent Rich Greif, an Interfaith Food Pantry board member, the three ended up raising $1,300 instead - on top of the $600 they raised last year for the food pantry. Rep. Paul Brodeur, Selectman Tiz Doto and School Committee members Greg Liakos and Kate Morgan were among those who reportedly came to show their support. The stand was part of "Lemonade Day," which teaches entrepreneurial skills to children by encouraging them to set up a lemonade…

A round up of North Shore restaurant and food news.
When you're looking for a night out and a break from cooking, you might want to know what's new not only where you live, but also in other North Shore communities. Here's a roundup of the area's latest food news: We've reported recently about the reopening of The Ship, the unmistakeable Route 1 landmark. This week we uncovered a relic of that restaurant's precursor, the Ship's Haven. While searching eBay, we came across a 1930s era menu from the local landmark. Word is that the current restaurant's management ended up purchasing the menu, which will be added to a small collection of relics there from those early days. The whole North Shore is abuzz over Beverly native Angie Miller, who has made the top three in "American Idol." Among the …

Whether it is full of raw power or finesse, everyone's dream car is unique.
Whether it started with the nearly imperceptible shape and accompanying wail of a passing Italian exotic, hours spent staring down the lines of a German poster car, or your first time slogging through mud that no machine should be able to transverse — all the cars of our dreams have their origins. My first dream car — and most car people will have at least a few in their life time — began to take form upon hearing my first V8. It was a passing sound that is attached to no vehicle in my memory, but it stuck with me. It wasn’t until I saw the lines of a 1966 Pontiac Tempest GTO that the form took shape. When I heard that boisterous engine while staring at a GTO, I knew that car had worked itself into my mind forever. Since that time, there …
Unitarian Universalist Church downtown has completed the internal phase of a capital campaign aimed at restoring its steeple to the town skyline. Now, the congregation is seeking support from the public.
The following was provided by the Unitarian Universalist Church of Wakefield: You may have walked by and seen the recent painting of the exterior, parked in front of it while going across the street to the Library, or even attended one of the many concerts held there. The historic Unitarian Universalist building has been a mainstay of the Wakefield landscape and skyline since 1859. The original Greek revival meetinghouse was built in 1839. But the spire had to be removed a few years ago for safety reasons and the tower and belfry structures have deteriorated. At a recent Public Forum there were votes of confidence and support from town officials that Wakefield neighbors and friends would help the church close the gap between steeple …
